Procol Harum Secrets of the Hive

2007 Compilation from Salvo Records (no longer available, February 2014)

The first Procol Harum anthology to present a comprehensive account of the band's twelve-album career to date, Secrets of the Hive is lavishly presented with 32-page booklet containing liner notes by Patrick Humphries  (history) and Roland from BtP (song notes, based on fresh interviews with Brooker and Reid) and many good illustrations. It contains one track not officially released until now, the live Into the Flood from Edmonton 1992.

Each disc plays in chronological order (though Repent Walpurgis is out of sequence, so as to round each disc off with a superb Fisher instrumental).
